With more than 30 years of industry experience, I am well prepared to handle business legal issues of any size or complexity. If litigation becomes necessary, I work tirelessly to defend your rights in court and provide the best possible results for your case.

Realizing your business dreams
A focus of my practice is helping clients start their own businesses. I review your business plans and advise on issues involved in business formation and maintenance, including potential liability, corporate entity formation and tax structures. Once your business has been established, I continue to help it grow by advising on insurance coverage, investment strategies and corporate compliance issues. I also look after your best interests by finding strategies to limit your personal liability and increase your bottom line.

Helping business owners move forward
My office works closely with business owners to ensure businesses run smoothly. I often negotiate and draft contracts and buy-and-sell agreements, assist with corporate compliance measures and tax filing, and represent businesses in shareholder disputes and commercial litigation cases. I know how to best represent your financial interests and successfully resolve your issues in the boardroom or the courtroom.
